Best Brake Pads for GTO....

I dropped the Hawk pads on my goat and they are the most awsome brakepads I have ever used!! .. stopping feels like a Porsche and no brakefade whatsoever..Stock braking system with only the brakepads !!... I strongly recommend these pads for Goats and every other heavy performance machine..

I cant even imagine the braking power if I loaded the goat up with Steelbraided lines and slotted rotors... Insane late braking then .. gotta load the trunk up with shoptowels and clean underwear...LOL...

On the website... What year make and model did you put in there? They don't have anything for an '05 GTO.

they do you just need to Xreffrence the pad and the GTO stock caliper.. to find the right code for the brakepads... but they have the ceramic and the HPS ones for the 05..

PS: only Hawk dealers and people that know how to do it .. can find um for ya... I couldnt find um myself so I had a race shop in Hawaii order them and bring um in for me...your best bet is to go to the Hawk website .. punch in dealer location and find the dealer nearest you ..
